lyrics

We won't survive, we won't succeed
The levees are broken, the animals flee
The wind and the rain, the storms and the sea
Keep pushing, keep rising, come closer to me
I look around and all I can see, battalions of nature consuming cities
Swallow your pride, admit defeat
We're running, we're climbing, it's full-on retreat

It's a standstill,
I'll be standing 'til
I'm laid out
With a sassy mouth
On and on, the crowds they go
From strength to strength, for friend or foe
When you think you're green, you'll grow
When you think you're ripe, you will get rotten

You spent your life building a dream
The concrete foundations support the oak beams
But oceans collide, mountains shoot steam
You'll never defend against such a skilled team
All that looked strong now looks so weak
The cracks in the mortar mean admit defeat
Swallow your pride and follow me
We're running, we're climbing, it's full-on retreat

It's a constant casting call
With no constancy at all
On and on, the crowds they go
From strength to strength, for friend or foe
When you think you're green, you'll grow
When you think you're ripe, you will get rotten

We won't survive the spread of disease
It's cleansing the earth with considerable ease
Errors absolved and records washed clean
There's no stopping now it's destroyed the machine
I look around and all I can see
The ending is coming the ending is real

It's all dissolving
Problems unsolving
And now I'm moulting
Friends like dead skin

When you think you're green, you'll grow
When you think you're ripe, you'll be forgotten
